Increased PICU Rooms: The PICU has been expanded to include 16 private patient and family rooms, up from the earlier 11 rooms, ensuring privacy and comfort for patients and their families.
Bassinet Pod System: This innovative system provides additional space, accommodating family members and loved ones, thereby enhancing the patient and family experience.
Private Rooms for Patients and Families: The design emphasizes private spaces for patients and their families, prioritizing comfort and privacy.
Interactive and Child-Friendly Design: The units are equipped with interactive features like reading nooks, shadow puppet corners, and large projected shapes in the elevator lobby, creating a welcoming and engaging environment for young patients.
Vibrant and Thoughtful Decor: The use of bright, engaging colors and child-friendly art creates a warm, inviting atmosphere that is suitable for children without being overly childish.
Enhanced Staff Facilities: The renovation includes improved facilities for staff, encompassing individual and group spaces, a staff lounge, better acoustics, sit-stand desks, and upgraded technologies, all contributing to a better work environment for healthcare professionals.
These advancements demonstrate Renown Health’s dedication to providing high-quality care in a supportive and advanced setting for its youngest patients and their families. The successful completion of this important project is also a testament to the ability and craftsmanship of the Clark/Sullivan team, whose expertise and commitment were crucial in delivering this state-of-the-art healthcare facility.
